    Default The Last Person Alive

    What would you do if you were the last person on Earth? How would you react?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    The last person left has to turn off the lights.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I'm human so I would try to survive. I'd probably find a lot of pets so that I would at least have someone to talk to. At first I probably would break a lot of old laws and do crazy things like drive a tank through a mall or set off explosives near a gas station. Perhaps eventually I would try to invent a way to create more humans from my own genetic material or I would try to build artificially intelligent beings.

    I'd go mad, I'm pretty sure.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Funny you should say that, because being human is precisely the reason I'd die I couldn't live with the knowledge that there isn't anyone, anywhere, I could EVER talk to.

    Or, IOW: what does it mean to be human, if you are the only human left?

    I'd probably find a lot of pets so that I would at least have someone to talk to.
    Yeah... I think I'd go farther than that, and try and get accepted into a wolf pack or something

    At first I probably would break a lot of old laws and do crazy things like drive a tank through a mall or set off explosives near a gas station.
    But what would be the POINT of doing it, if there's nobody to watch you do it, and nobody to tell the story to later??

    Perhaps eventually I would try to invent a way to create more humans from my own genetic material or I would try to build artificially intelligent beings.
    I thought of that too, but I just don't have the smarts to ever achieve that

    The first thing you need is an axe. To chop wood and to break in to the retail store to steal a bicycle and a shovel. You need to find a cabin that still has a functioning oven. You need to be a diviner to find a well. It is better to start learning now. Forget Thoreau and Rousseau and Emerson and Emily Dickinson.
    They were not practical people. Study Donald Duck. Well, not him.. he is hopeless. I mean the pragmatic nephews of course.

    I would passionately study science so that I could create a human-chimp half breed from preserved human DNA. And stuff like that. Lots of fun! I'd probably live in a mall and drive a Hummer. And I'd do lots of things that are not appropriate to mention here.

    Oh come now. It wouldn't be that much different than ending up stranded on a deserted island. You could even find a volleyball and name it Wilson if you wanted.

    That would depend entirely on the circumstances of humanity’s demise. If it’s a zombie outbreak then I may be held up in a bunker full of canned food, ammunition and the finest pornography. If it’s a plague of which I am the only one immune then I may be lodged in a bowling alley full of chinese food, video games and the finest pornography.
